  7. Stevemo, I have a Snap-On steering wheel puller set # CG-60-E from the early 1950's like yours, the three grooved adaptors (CG67-7) are used with the small steering wheel puller, are used on Buick steering wheels 1939 thru 1954, 3 slots in steering wheel, after horn button removed, the 3 legs of the puller go into the slots and then twist and lock into steering wheel for removal. If you have any questions or need photo of a Buick's steering wheel, let me know. Bob
  8. Bill, Nice job on car, looks great, I also like the garage car is going into. Bob
  9. I also purchased a scroll compressor at Eastwood at the store in Alsip, IL. I was at the store and a worker using a DA sander on a fender in the classroom/shop and the DA was louder than the compressor, they were going to be at a swap meet in Rockford, IL. Received a great price and I picked it up at the store after they returned. It is very quiet, BUT slight hissing noise for about 2 to 3 minutes after it cycles off, no harm, just annoying. I mainly use 3/8", 1/2",and 3/4" impacts, air chisels, small cut off tools and works great for me. I could never get crankshaft bolt off a Honda or Acura so I could replace the timing belt, I used to take the car to work to loosen bolt, now I just roll my quiet scroll compressor to the front of the car, and able to remove crankshaft bolt at home and complete replacing timing belt operation. I spent a little more than I had planned on, but I found a credit card with 0% interest for 15 months, all worked out great for me. Bob

  13. Close to my house is a 1957 Estate wagon that a friend of mine was going to buy, I went with him to look at it, the front bumper and grille with emblem was in good shape, the rear bumper ends and upper and lower tailgate looked good (and rear side glass) , BUT there was NO roof, previous owner cut roof off to use making his tool shed. The seller changed mind and declined to sell car. Bob

  20. The Buick master chassis parts book lists drive shaft for 1950 thru 1952 Super and Roadmaster are the same,(Super Estate Wagons were built on Super chassis) I also checked with a local club member that knows a great deal about 50's Buick's, and agreed about the Super chassis and fitment of the drive shaft on the Super Estate wagon, I would also ask Windy Hill junkyard just to verify the fitment of drive shaft with them first before purchasing it. The weight, converter pump balance group number #4.115, fitment for 1948-1950 part number is 1337136 (.0345") 1337137 (.060") 1337138 (.120") thickness, I will send you 1958 engine balance procedure bulletin by e-mail tomorrow, as it is to large for the forum. Bob
  21. I also had a vibration in my 1958 Buick with a Dynaflow, turns out there was a service bulletin for Dynaflow torque converter balancing weights. I purchased the weights from Robert Graves in Massachusetts, (parts vendor for the Buick Club), and then followed the bulletin, was a time consuming deal, but when done no more vibration, I have the bulletin if you need it. I also looked in the chassis part book and it shows drive shaft for the Super and Roadmaster being the same from 1950 thru 1952, and 3 of them are at Windy Hill junkyard in New London , MN (phone # 320-354-2201 and stock numbers are JB2184,Jb2943, Jb2523 I hope this helps. Bob
  22. I rebuilt a 1954 Special manual transmission, the top cover just had a gasket, no sealer, the person before I put a clutch in the car, and used a full tube of blue silicone between the bell housing and transmission, so trying to remove the transmission while up on jack stands, as I pulled back on transmission and let it go, to reposition myself on ground, the transmission went back into the bell housing, (like rubber bands were attached) once it was out the snap ring that secured the support to the bell housing was missing, causing a transmission oil leak. I had to take extra time to remove all the blue silicone, it was a mess. Bob
